Synopsis


A few sensitive viewers bailed out on Seinfeld at the end of season seven, in response to George's (Jason Alexander) apathetic reaction to the "death by envelope" of his fiancée, Susan. Others realized that a "show about nothing" can do just about anything, and thus stuck with Seinfeld as it entered its eighth season. As a reward for their loyalty, those viewers were treated to such first-rate episodes as the season opener, "The Foundation," in which Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) crosses paths with the girl whose name "rhymes with a female body part," Kramer (Michael Richards) takes up karate, and Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) "becomes" her boss, J. Peterman (John O'Hurley). A few weeks later, Seinfeld's lifelong obsession with Superman manifests itself in "The Bizarro Jerry," in which we meet a group of people who are the exact opposites of the Seinfeld gang. Other highlights: a visit to a woman's prison yields strange results in "The Little Jerry"; Kramer begins to wonder what life would be like in a coma in "The Comeback"; a toothbrush in the toilet is the catalyst for disaster in "The Pothole"; Lloyd Bridges guest stars as 80-year-old physical fitness freak Izzy Mandelbaum in "The English Patient," which is also the episode in which Kramer gets involved with smuggling Cubans (cigars, that is); and in the season finale, "The Summer of George," things come full circle from the season opener, with another character "clinging to life" (sort of) in a hospital bed.

    Could Seinfeld "jump the shark," even if it tried?

    When I find DVD bargains for other shows, I will at least try to buy seasons in order. But I didn't hesitate to jump ahead to season 8 of Seinfeld. The later seasons are my favorite. No danger of jumping the shark; how could a show with characters George and Kramer become too outlandish? Commentaries are given for: "Bizzaro Jerry," "Little Kicks," "Fatigues," "Checks," "Chicken Roaster" (2 tracks), "Abstinence," "Comeback," "Susie," "Pothole," "Nap," "Yada Yada," "Muffin Tops," and "Summer of George."

    Like I said, you can't go wrong with Seinfeld. The only thing I don't like is this volume's packaging doesn't match earlier ones. It's not necessarily bad, but I would like them all to match.

    You really can't go wrong with Seinfeld. Even so near to the final season of the series, every single episode was an instant classic. Do yourselves a favor and purchase this collection!

    This is the best sitcom of all times and this may even be the best season of the entire series. There are hours of episodes that will keep you laughing for a long time.
